فأَنَأ أَعْرِفُ أَنْ أَعِيشَ في الحِرْمَان، كَمَا أَعْرِفُ أَنْ أَعِيشَ في الوَفْرَة. فَإِنِّي في كُلِّ وَقْتٍ وكُلِّ حَالٍ تَدَرَّبْتُ عَلى الشِّبَعِ والجُوع، وعلى البَحْبُوحَةِ والفَاقَة. إِنِّي أَسْتَطِيعُ كُلَّ شَيءٍ بِالَّذي يُقَوِّينِي
رسالة القدّيس بولس إلى أهل فيلبّي04/من08حتى14/:”يا إخوَتِي، كُلُّ مَا هُوَ حَقّ، وكُلُّ مَا هُوَ شَرِيف، وَكُلُّ مَا هُوَ بَارّ، وكُلُّ مَا هُوَ نَقِيّ، وكُلُّ مَا هُوَ مُحَبَّب، وكُلُّ مَا هُوَ مَمْدُوح، وكُلُّ مَا فِيهِ فَضِيلَة، وكُلُّ مَا فيهِ مَدِيح، فَفِيهِ فَكِّرُوا. وما تَعَلَّمْتُمُوهُ وتَلَقَّيْتُمُوهُ وسَمِعْتُمُوهُ مِنِّي، ورأَيْتُمُوهُ فيَّ، فإِيَّاهُ ٱعْمَلُوا. وإِلهُ السَّلامِ يَكُونُ مَعَكُم! لَقَدْ فَرِحْتُ في الرَّبِّ فَرَحًا عَظِيمًا، لأَنَّ ٱهْتِمَامَكُم بِي عَادَ أَخِيرًا فأَزْهَر. وكُنْتُم تَهْتَمُّون، غَيْرَ أَنَّ الفُرْصَةَ لَمْ تَسْنَحْ لَكُم. ولا أَقُولُ هذَا عَنْ حَاجَة، لأَنِّي تَعَلَّمْتُ أَنْ أَكْتَفِيَ بِمَا أَنَا عَلَيْه. فأَنَأ أَعْرِفُ أَنْ أَعِيشَ في الحِرْمَان، كَمَا أَعْرِفُ أَنْ أَعِيشَ في الوَفْرَة. فَإِنِّي في كُلِّ وَقْتٍ وكُلِّ حَالٍ تَدَرَّبْتُ عَلى الشِّبَعِ والجُوع، وعلى البَحْبُوحَةِ والفَاقَة. إِنِّي أَسْتَطِيعُ كُلَّ شَيءٍ بِالَّذي يُقَوِّينِي. مَعَ ذَلِكَ فقَد أَحْسَنْتُم عِندَمَا شَارَكْتُمُونِي في ضِيقِي.

I have learned to be content with whatever I have. I know what it is to have little, and I know what it is to have plenty. In any and all circumstances I have learned the secret of being well-fed and of going hungry, of having plenty and of being in need. I can do all things through him who strengthens me
Letter to the Philippians 04/08-14:”Finally, beloved, whatever is true, whatever is honourable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is pleasing, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence and if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things. Keep on doing the things that you have learned and received and heard and seen in me, and the God of peace will be with you. I rejoice in the Lord greatly that now at last you have revived your concern for me; indeed, you were concerned for me, but had no opportunity to show it. Not that I am referring to being in need; for I have learned to be content with whatever I have. I know what it is to have little, and I know what it is to have plenty. In any and all circumstances I have learned the secret of being well-fed and of going hungry, of having plenty and of being in need. I can do all things through him who strengthens me. In any case, it was kind of you to share my distress.”
